What Saturdays Were Made For...

I don't think there are words to describe how perfect this morning was...but let me try!

The blossoms are starting to fall from the trees - it's raining petals! Beautiful, pink, soft petals. Due kept getting them stuck on his nose! I found this pretty funny!

Due's been staying with us the last couple of nights. This morning it was just Mom & Aunt Dana so after breakfast - we decided to play with Due and head off in a NEW direction! He likes routines - I like to mix it up - so we did! He seemed to like the Ramble...

We took time out to sit on a rustic bench by the water. Notice it's after 9am so we are leashed up. Plus you know me and water...I really wanted to take a dip!

We came out of the Ramble at the Bow Bridge - which is one of Mom's favorites. These next few canine-free pics are for her. She thought the floral urns on the bridge were exceptional and wanted to share them with all!

More azaleas. Its fun to see what is blooming in the Park. Every week it seems to be bursting with something different. Something beautiful.

I must admit they really were stunning. Looks like Augusta!

Tulips are always a favorite! It just screams "SPRINGTIME IN THE PARK".
We took a break on these benches before continuing home. I hope you enjoyed sharing our Saturday adventure.

Stay tuned....we stopped by a place called the "Ball Field Cafe" and although it wasn't open yet - we did talk to a couple of the staff guys and found out that 1) They open at 11am 2) YES - they will have the homemade guacamole starting May 1 and 3) YES - they do serve adult beverages.

In dog talk - what I heard was after May 1 I may get an additional late afternoon/early evening trip to the Park for a little guc & beer. (OK fine - Mom & Aunt Dana get the beer - but its right by the ball fields - so I'm thinking I'll have LOTS of ballplayers who just might need to pet me!)
